Cherry MX Greens

I would just like to know why it is that there is such an up-charge on Greens.
Comparing the differences between costs on https://mechanicalkeyboards.com, most keyboards have a $10 or $15 difference, but here it's closer to $20 or $30.
I would assume it would be from scarcity of the switches, but if that were the case, I feel there would probably be fewer drops that have them as an option.
I mean, I'm positive Massdrop isn't trying to screw over its consumers, but there does seem to be something fishy.
I don't know, really. What do you all think of it?

It's the same reason greys would be more expensive there is much less demand even though they are way better.

It's not like that only on Massdrop. If you poke around you'll find that Greens and to a lesser extent Clears command a bigger price premium over Reds, Blacks, Blues, and Browns. The simplest explanation is that for whatever reason Cherry charges manufacturers and vendors more for Greens.
